Locate A Locum helps pharmacies and care homes fill open shifts with qualified professionals. The platform handles scheduling and payments.
When a pharmacy or care home has an open shift; finding a qualified professional to cover it can be a stressful and costly experience. For locum healthcare workers, it can be equally stressful to find open shifts and collect payment.
Locate A Locum, currently operating in the UK and Ireland, is a digital solution that connects locum professionals with organisations. Locum pharmacists and healthcare workers can fill out a profile on the platform, which is searchable by organisations. Locum professionals can locate and book open shifts instantly that are convenient for them. They can set their availability, and it’s up to the healthcare worker whether they want to work one shift a month or twenty.
The service provides a way for pharmacies and care homes to vet the healthcare workers before they work together. The platform handles communication and payments to make the process as painless for both sides as possible. No fees are taken from the locums. Patchwork offers a similar solution, using tech to help fill open shifts with the right staff in hospitals. Locate A Locum is an intuitive way to ensure available work gets covered by qualified, vetted healthcare workers without the stress of manual scheduling.
